At last! The Exciting Event is Here. My First Anniversary!
Yes, I know! It’s hard to believe I have been blogging now for a whole year! Time Flies when you’re having fun.
What? Did you think it was something else? What could be more exciting than this?
I’d like to thank the WP community for being so great. And I’d like to thank everyone who has popped by my blog and liked or commented on a post. I thoroughly enjoy seeing all of your amazing photos and reading your posts. I feel like I know some of my “regulars” as friends, even though we have never met, nor are likely to, being separated in most instances by vast oceans.
I thought for extra fun, in this special One Year Anniversary Post, that I’d tell you a bit about how this got started.
Basically I mentioned to my daughter one day, that I’d thought of starting a blog on the mad adventures of my dog.
Now I meant someday; you know; whenever! Next thing I knew my blog was up and running! I’d thought of a few blog site titles, but when we tried them, they were already taken. Pushed to find something like now, I came up with mad cap dog. And there we have stayed. The scifihammy was always a given.
Next, I needed to post something to check out how it all worked. So I quickly penned an amusing (I thought) incident involving Little Monkey, hit publish, and voila! I was out there.
No-one noticed. Insert ominous silence with crickets chirping in the background!
Here, for your continued entertainment, is the link to my very first efforts, posted on 24 May 2014. Tree Climbing. Who’s going to be the First to like this? (wink.)
I started my blog mainly as a writing experience, since I love to write. At the time, I was in the middle of writing the third book in a series of novelettes, which together make up a sizeable book. (No, you’ll never read them.) So it was quite difficult to keep the blog going in the early days.
My blog soon branched out to include photos; of flowers and skies, mountains and seas, as well as dogs. Eventually that sort of became the main event, and the writing became maybe once a week, at the weekend. Time to start the fourth novelette I think!
It is difficult to post some days, with such bad internet and power cuts. On those days it is impossible for me to load someone else’s blog and to comment. The ‘some days’ has lately become ‘most days’. So this is why you may not be hearing from me as much as in the past.
I have lots of fun blogging, so I’ll carry on posting, (apart from a few weeks break coming up next month). After all, Little Monkey and Mr Spaghetti Legs give me lots to write about.
And Thank You to all of you out there who make the whole blogging experience a pleasant one. WP is a community, and if it wasn’t for feedback, likes and comments, what would be the point? I’d still be sitting here listening to the crickets chirp!
